Illustrations for the 2017 Tel Aviv Illustration Week exhibit - Et GurNirdam. The illustrations are for the song "Et Gur Nirdam" by Miriam Yalan Stekelis. The song describes what goes on during the night - while the cub sleeps. These two spreads talk about the Guard and the Baker, two people working at night.
The brief asked that we re-examine this classic text, in a contemporary context. In my interpretation I wish to explore how our society’s view on “night shifts” has changed from the song’s picturesque description of professionals dedicating their night hours to lovingly protect and serve those who sleep.
The Little Whale
For my senior project at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, I illustrated and designed a book of the children’s story “The Little Whale” by Oded Burla. Michal Bonano was my advising teacher for this project. Illustrations are hand painted in acrylic, and edited digitally.
What Happened to the Crocodile?
During my senior year at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, I illustrated “What Happened to the Crocodile?” by Ayin Hilel, as part of the studio course instructed by Rutu Modan and Ayal Zakin. In these illustrations I experimented with lines, colors, and shapes, testing the relationship between background and characters. I was drawn to the text's unique whimsical humor, and wanted to convey a similar feeling with the illustrations.
Throughout 2018, I created postcards, starring my crocodile from the “What Happened to the Crocodile?” project. I sent out these postcards to friends and family, like a newsletter, but more fun. In honor of the Primavera holiday print sale, I compiled the postcards in to a Hebrew calendar.
This animation was for an assignment titled "Side by Side” in a course led by Alon Braier. The task was to create a loop-able animation, showing two parallel frames. I chose to depict the experience of going to the Mikva. This project sparked some online discussion, mostly in private women's groups. Click through to read an article on Forward.
